leadership and we need it now. >> cenk: there has been criticism of chuck hagel for being anti-gay because he called an ambassador openly and aggressively gay. i still don't know what that means. but now there is an ad against hagel. that's video c-14, guys. let's roll that. >> hagel is anti-woman, anti-choice, anti-israel anti-gay, and pro assault weapon. that's just not what we voted for in november. >> cenk: of course, that's not a liberal group running that. that's a neo-conservative group that hates the position because it's not aggressively militaristic enough. does hagel have a problem on this issue or no? >> well, you know, it goes beyond statements that the senator has made. he had a voting record in the senate that was clearly anti-gay. now, he's apologized for those statements, and he has made commitments publicly to support gay service men and women and their families. action speaks louder than apologies. we need to see a commitment from him and a plan to act. we're going to be looking at these confirmation hearings to hear what that plan is. >> cenk: are you worried conservative
for chuck hagel as defense secretary, that sealed the deal, would you gentlemen agree? >> yeah. i never could envision how he would start obama's second term by coming out and going against chuck hagel for secretary of defense. never made any sense and yeah, once he came out, the story ended. i loved the media chatter about how hagel has this huge confirmation battle and will end up with 90 votes. schumer was the first and final voice on that, i think. >> john: i think that was more due to the alleged controversy over comments about the israeli lobby by hagel unfortunately called the jewish lobby. chuck schumer one of our most powerful jewish members of the senate. >> i was surprised. even this morning, i was watching tv. there were anti-chuck hagel ads being run by this -- one interest group. i was quite shocked. they went after him for the israel, for comments he made about -- >> myrlie evers, widow of the late, great myrlie evers. >> america, we are here, our nation's capitol, on this day, january 21, 2013, the inauguration of our 45th president, barack obama. we come at this time to
-- if as many predict that defense secretary spot will be occupied by chuck hagel, then why start him out with any kind of controversy just get it done. give him a clean start. >> bill: right. theory is, the joint chiefs in a letter to the secretary said "the time has come to rescind the direct combat exclusion rule for women and to eliminate all unnecessary gender-based barriers to service." that's what the generals are saying. your thoughts on combat, lifting the ban on women serving in combat. it's going to happen a little bit later today. 1-866-55-press. talking with lynn sweet washington bureau chief of the "chicago sun times." speaking of women in combat, secretary of state hillary clinton, i just want to play, dan, the one clip when this summed it up. she was attacked by rand paul and john mccain and by ron johnson of wisconsin which is very tough very patient. ron johnson finally got under her skin and she fired back. >> again, we were misledsh there were supposedly protests and something sprang out of that. an assault sprang out of that. that was easily ascertained that that was
in politics that i am not objective about, and she is one of them. another one is chuck hagel but that's another story. >> stephanie: it was hilarious, like most people this week she was caught in traffic, and he was literally in the middle of a stem winder he would be able to afford education -- and it's like elizabeth warren is here. >> yeah, he was very sharp. and some day i hope to ask him. how do you integrate his previous job with this one? he was very, very funny. >> stephanie: yeah, he has unleashed the comedy cracken again. >> yeah, because it has to be enormously tempting. to essentially squelch the heckelers. >> stephanie: oh my god, jim he did a dead on bernie sanders impersonation. and he made an amazing point about the cost of college. how much does it cost in this country. >> yeah, and in finland. >> stephanie: and he said in fin lan they pay you to go to college. >> yeah. >> stephanie: but he made a really good point of the percentage that pell grants paid -- >> it was 60% of your education, and now it pays 32. >> stephanie: yeah, he was talking about
